I started as Policy Adviser, Skills at the Heritage Lottery Fund in June 2017. I have managed two Skills for the Future traineeship projects, 'Transforming Archives' led by The National Archives and 'Conserving Local Communities' Heritage' led by Glamorgan Archives. Both projects were designed to address identified skills shortages in the heritage sector and increase the diversity of the heritage workforce through bringing trainees into the workforce through new routes. I am a qualified archivist (and a Registered Member of the ARA) and I have specialised in workforce development, including working for a Sector Skills Council to develop National Occupational Standards (NOS), apprenticeship frameworks and vocational qualifications. I am also a qualified assessor and verifier and have assessed candidates at Level 2 and 3 working in libraries, archives and museums.
